it is semi difficult to find a vert in a 5spd, at least id say most verts were auto's but i wouldnt consider it "rare" by any means

If anybody is looking for headers, grab these. They appear to be the same ones that I got and they fit fine.

If I hadn't been browsing the forum on my phone (I love my Atrix!) I wouldn't have seen your posting in time.

The seller seems like a really nice guy. He had someone local text him about buying them just after I paid and he told them they were sold. I told him he could refund the $$ and sell them to the local to avoid having to pack and ship them, but he said, no, a deal's a deal. I wouldn't want to try and pack them, and shipping's going to be pretty high.

I wonder how hard that would be to fix?

Hmm makes me wonder as well... I would imagine finding the parts would be the hardest thing.

Honestly, that's not a bad looking car (ditch the 18s) but that's a crazy high price.

Sad indeed. Perhaps not as sad as the 840 that another local BMWCCA member owns, though. He's inflicted a lot of his own "mods" to his car, and it looks awful. He even went so far as to cut louvers in the hood, etc. It looks like it was done with a hack saw and a pair of pliers... When we were at the BMWCCA car control clinic last April, one of the two batteries in his trunk was loose and was rolling all over the place inside his trunk, banging the heck out of everything . Anyway, I've chatted with him once or twice, and apparently parts are insanely hard to come by, and crazy expensive when you do.

That seems a very good price. Things to note: the autotragic tranny will die. The Luxury interior is far less desirable. http://www.obd-codes.com/p0335 CPS. Not a difficult or expensive fix.
